Mei and Anthony have been together for half their lives. High school sweethearts, they dated through college, through long distance when Anthony moved across the country for work, and now they have been reunited in San Francisco, where they are embarking on forever together. They were wed on an absolutely beautiful day in California, with a celebration that joined both their friends and family together, surrounded by the lush gardens and historic charm of Park Winters. See a few of the highlights below!
I always love seeing these side-by-side photos of the bride and the groom’s sides getting ready, doing variations of the same thing at the same time, but separately from each other.
A very sweet first look,
followed by portraits around Park Winters.
I loved the signage, featuring the light blue and wicker motifs, and with working lights!
A veritable rainbow of guests outfits.
Ready for the ceremony by the sunken garden.
This was very adorable. The couple requested an unplugged wedding with no phones out during the ceremony, but first they offered the guests one minute to get all of their photos out of their system, selfies and cell phones welcome. Just for one minute! And then they all put away their devices. I’m a fan! That way the main photos don’t all look like this!
Married! And now it’s off to cocktail hour.
I also loved this escort display, featuring plants propagated by the bride! Welcoming guests to take them home.
Making their selections
And modeled by the plant mama herself.
The groomsmen made quite their choreographed entrance
And the bridesmaids came in shooting (fake) 100 dollar bills into the air.
And they danced the night away!
Congratulations, Mei & Anthony!
